The deadline for the Hunter Safety Awards application is a only few months away, so we thought it would be a good idea to remind you the benefits you can receive from entering business awards.
We have noticed that many businesses are doing great things in the WHS space, but they never take the time to stop and consider how far they’ve come. By undertaking an award submission you are able to reflect on where you started and where you are now.
Entering business awards provide some great free marketing! In the case of the Hunter Safety Awards for finalists it includes being featured on our website and social media, as well as the media coverage. At the awards night all finalists will appear on the audiovisual presentation, as well as in the awards magazine.
The key to effective PR is having a ‘hook’ or a newsworthy story. Being a finalist or a winner of awards is a great story to pitch to local and industry media. In addition it provides interesting content for your own website and social media channels.
Being a finalist in the Hunter Safety Awards can act as the ‘seal of approval’ for your potential and current clients. They know the work and effort that goes into preparing an award submission and that your application is reviewed by an independent panel of judges.
It’s often hard to stand out from your competitors, but being a finalist or a winner in awards can provide a crucial point of difference from your competition.
So if we have convinced you, we encourage you to download our award criteria and submit an entry into the awards!
